anyone going to the car show?
« on: March 29, 2006, 08:43:11 PM »
I don't normally go to these car shows as they are pretty much a bunch of dealership showrooms under one roof, with not that many concept cars.  Also I can't deal with large crowds and checking out cars that are filthy and sticky from being touched and fondled all day long (yes, I'm neurotic).
However, I haven't been to one for a long time so I may be interested in going if there is something worthwhile to see.

BTW, has anyone seen the special car show pullout in today's paper?
It's a very disappointing new car guide I've read -- outdated and riddled with incorrect information.
Probably not related, the car critic Denver/Rocky Mountain News uses should go (I think his name is Bud something), his articles are not at all critical (sounds like he writes for the car maker) and he often brings up irrelevant information or stories that makes it a painful read.

Anyways, anyone planning on going to the show?  It ends this Sunday.

I was going to go tonight, but realized Lost was on, and it is a new one....

Last year, the car show was a let down, so I decided to grill up some chicken, watch TV, and have a nice quiet night at home.

So, no, I am not going this year.

Well, I was going anyway, but am now kind of excited to go.  

I just heard they have this car there:

8 liters, 16 cylinders, 4 turbos, 1001 hp, dsg, quattro, 252 MPH, and a cool $1M price tag.

mmmmmm.  bugatti.    :bow:

I am going to go drool.   :woohoo:

We heard yesterday that it was sold. Impressive to see in person, 1.3 million or something like that.
